Current Official Community Plan (OCP) for Electoral Area B. The CSRD adopted Electoral Area B Official Community Plan Bylaw No. 850 at the October 16, 2008 Board Meeting.
With adoption of Bylaw No. 850-1, two new Development Permits (DPs) are introduced to Electoral Area ‘B’ in addition to the existing DPs. DPs are established in the OCP as a tool to help protect the environment, avoid development in hazardous areas, and set guidelines for the form and character of commercial development.

The Local Government Act provides the Regional District with the authority to establish a development permitting system. It also makes provision for local governments to require applicants for development approvals to undertake impact studies. Development Permits are one of the most effective legal tools for the protection of environmentally sensitive areas, avoiding development in hazardous conditions, and setting out expectations regarding “form and character” of development. Local governments may designate Development Permit Areas (DPAs) in an OCP. When an area is designated, the local government must describe the special site conditions or objectives that justify the designation, and specify guidelines to achieve those objectives. Where land is subject to more than one Development Permit Area designation, a single Development Permit is required. The application will be subject to the requirements of all applicable Development Permit Areas, and any Development Permit issued will be in accordance with the guidelines of all such areas. Variances, as well as conditions respecting the sequence and timing of construction, may also be considered for inclusion within a Development Permit in accordance with applicable guidelines as per the authority granted under s.488(1) and s.488(3) of the Local Government Act.
This consolidated bylaw is not intended to be used for legal purposes. The term “consolidated bylaw” simply means that the document represents the bylaw in its most recently amended form. The consolidated bylaw consists of the original, or base, bylaw and current amendments which have been made to the base bylaw.
